“Well done team!”

We concluded the missives on the sale of plot one yesterday. Well done team! I have used many words to describe land/property agents over the years! You guys have restored the faith. Thank you. In particular Annie, always cheerful and enthusiastic, diligent and motivated. She even sent me a few "xxxx" on her e mails when things were a bit down. It cheered me up no end. All of you were aware of the progress and it was refreshing to speak to any of the team who had the latest information at any time. Which brings me neatly to Clark. Isn't it amazing what Rugby does? As soon as I was aware of Clark's close connection with rugby (and I was there when David Sole walked out onto the turf in Murrayfield in 1990) the agency had already been selected. Clark gave me some carefully crafted advice and gave good advice as to my expectations for the sale prices of the plots. I have just concluded missives on a small 2 bed flat in Pollokshaws and will ask Annie if she will recommend the Clyde Team there when we come to sell (this crazy 6 month law!!) I will be back again soon. I Hope.

“A perfect example of 5* service “

Having never sold a house before, I had no idea what to do. I used Clyde on a recommendation and it is one that I will be giving to anyone that I know who is selling. From the outset, nothing was too much trouble for the team and they explained every step of the process to me and kept me regularly updated. The patience they showed even when my questions were silly was brilliant. The entire experience was made very easy and everyone that I encountered on the team was an absolute joy to deal with. I can’t recommend Clyde highly enough, this is a perfect example of 5* service at competitive prices. From the initial enquiry to closing date was only 9 days – Amazing. Thank You.
